Sounds like you have a backlight fault. To verify this, turn on the TV, dim the lights in the room. Take a bright flashlight and shine it on the screen. If you see a faint picture you have a backlight problem. Do you feel comfortable opening up your set?

Tv works great and awesome picture for about 5 minutes. screen blacks out but still has sound, if i turn it off and back on picture comes back for another 2-5 minutes.


Your power supply is starting to fail. It produces several voltages for the different boards inside. There is a board called a T Con board that controls the picture. It would be suspect too. You can get parts for your TV from here.

I got a WESTINGHOUSE that powers on and has a great picture but goes black in about ten minutes still has sound!! i can hit the source button a few times then picture comes back on then same thing all over...


There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
